If so, then let's see him get some balls in games. A full time Butler surely sounds better than a less than part time Parker. I like Butler's size, but why was he available for the Dolphins and at such a cheap price?

When the Dolphins signed wide receiver Brice Butler during their bye week, they did more than simply add depth for the rest of this season.
They might also have found their replacement for DeVante Parker on next year’s roster.
With the Dolphins likely needing to create cap space to fill needs this offseason, the odds are against Miami retaining Parker at the $9.4 million he’s owed next season, barring an amazing close to the season. That amount is guaranteed only in the event of a serious injury.
And though Butler said he wasn’t given an explanation, it was notable that when the Dolphins signed Butler on Nov. 14, they gave him a two-year deal through 2019. He will earn $810,000 next season.
It wouldn’t be surprising if the Dolphins open next season with Danny Amendola, Kenny Stills, Albert Wilson, Jakeem Grant and Butler as their receivers.
The Dolphins coaching staff thinks highly of Butler, and it’s telling that he received 34 offensive snaps last week, compared with none for Leonte Carroo.
